I will try, but if none of these works, is it possible to install other operating system like nitdroid? or it can't be done without working harmattan on board?

Suggest you have a look at: https://wiki.maemo.org/Ubiboot

As you showed previously that you can flash the kernel, there should be no problem using the command
HTML Code:
flasher -a <yourmainfirmware.bin> -k zImage_2.6.32.54-ubiboot-02_301013 --flash-only=kernel -f -R
for one example.

Please note that a lot of Nitdroid links referred to are now void but see here:https://web.archive.org/web/20150302....com/e-yes/n9/

If you were prepared to use Linux there would probably be more scope to experiment. Although this resource installs Sailfish I don't know whether device would boot after installing open mode or not, which can use your existing flasher installation under Windows:https://himanen.info/installing-sail...ntu-12-04-lts/

HI everyone! I'm having a problem with my N9 (newly bought this year only). Everytime I turn it on, it gets stuck with the Nokia logo and the led light keeps on blinking then after a few seconds, reboots again and gets stuck with the logo again endlessly. Tried charging it with the original charger as well as my smartphone charger but it reboots and reboots. I haven't flash this phone nor mess with any settings. All I can remember is that when I was listening to some music, it hanged and restarted and that did happen more than once. I don't really use this phone a lot but it will be such a waste if I cannot use this as this is such a beautiful phone!

Tried some guide here - i tried using the R& D method here and the back to production but to no avail. I also tried charging it using the flasher as I think it does not have enough power but it reboots and reboots after a few minutes. Please help!! Or did I do anything wrong with any suggested methods? P.S. Step by step methods pls as I don't have very much knowledge with flashing. Thanks!

Like in mine!

I had a dead N900 that I could not flas for over a year and considered it busted. I tried all three computers in the house with four different OSes, nothing. Then I got a new laptop, tried flashing just for the lark, and hey presto, it worked right away.

#pichlo, i hope it will work for me too.

#aspergerguy, It didn't boot, i've tried with openmode and zimage13 andd still nothing, the worst thing is that it seems to be impossible to install other systems without an acces to the terminal, which i don't have. Is it possible to remove the warranty warning screen?

I would like o thank you for your help and your time, i really appreciate your support. But i'm starting to think that it really goes beyond my capabilities.

As mentioned previously for further investigation you would need to utilise Linux albeit a Live version upon USB to investigate state of partitions, although unfortunately fact that flasher can't remedy issue points to problems within flash memory. Here are a few resources for further information at which point you may decide that it is not for you, which is completely understandable:
